Obesity is not only a physical condition that translates to considerable amount of fat being deposited on the body, it is a path to countless diseases like diabetes, gallstones and heart attacks. You would have seen many transformation videos on social media where an overweight person is seen lifting heavy weights, running briskly on the treadmill and bathing in sweat inside the gym but it’s a lot more than that. It’s a complete science. Here are some of the tips of losing belly fat fast.
- Reduce the intake of sugar
When you take in a lot of sugary food, the liver becomes pressurized and is unable to convert glucose to energy, hence it converts it in to fat. Also, due to excess intake of carbonated drinks, the body doesn’t ‘regard’ it as calories and get accumulated in the form of fat cells on the body.
- Take in soluble fiber
Fiber is a substance which works in unique manner to reduce weight. Soluble fiber expels fatty acids present inside the body which contribute towards fat build-up. In addition, it regulates the digestion process which helps in minimizing the appetite.
- Do aerobic exercise
It is the type of exercise that causes high rate of heart pumping, enhanced intake of oxygen and excess perspiration which will burn the fat of the body. It could be anything from cycling to running, jumping and swimming. The most effective scheme of aerobic exercise to follow is intermittent approach i.e. to do high intensity activities with a rest in between.
- Sleep sufficiently
Yes. Sleeping long enough gets you lean, how exciting is that! Actually, sleeping less than 6-8 hours a day increases the growth of a hormone named Ghrelin which stimulates hunger and enhances the appetite for food. Moreover, the more you sleep (within healthy limits), the less you are left with time to eat and drink and also, a good sleep gives food enough time to be properly metabolized instead of being converted to fatty acids and harmful materials.
- Add resistance training to your daily routine
Resistance exercise is a must for reducing fat. It is a form of exercise that improves muscular strength by working against external resistance. It activates the muscles, increases the metabolism and burns calories. It also increases the resting metabolic rate (RMR) which burns more energy and makes body more efficient in reducing fat.
Work on these tips and see the results yourself.
